Looking for a Micro ATX motherboard with z270 chipset that is new. I don't know to trust used. I have found similar boards but I need to have z270 in order to get the most out of my RAM.

I have G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series DDR4 3200

3200 down to 2400 seems like a big drop in speed.

This is the least expensive Z270 microATX board available new, and it is not cheap, because these boards have not been manufactured for a number of years now.

What is your case model? Does your case ONLY support microATX boards, because you can get a standard ATX Z270 board a LOT cheaper.

Thx for the fast response. That board will definitely do the job but is expensive. What I'm trying to do is make my setup alot smaller with a different case. I currently have a very old Antec 900 Newegg link

I looked for small atx cases but can't justify paying for a new case and cpu fan to shrink it 2-3 inches. Was thinking about going micro ATX and replacing the mobo,case and fan to lose around 6 + inches.

I would like to keep the speed of my 3200 ram but z270 seems to the the only chipset I can go with. But surely 2400 ram isn't that much of a performance drop.
